Here is how it worked. They were given a list of 12 items to find. (I will copy the text below.) They had to stay together and find the items in order. They had to take a picture of each one. I am not a fan of making other people's jobs more difficult, so I wanted to use pictures so they wouldn't be moving items around or making messes. My directions specify which boys took pictures of which items to eliminate arguing and specify that running in the store will disqualify them from the prize (cheap ice cream at McDonald's). While the boys were working, I gave my 2-year old daughter a picture hunt to complete in the produce aisle. I would let her find the items. Then I would take the picture and show her. She had a blast and loved to see the pictures.
Here is the list I gave the boys:
Take a picture of each item in order. *** takes pictures of 1-6. *** takes pictures of 7-12. Be sure to walk so you are not disqualified.
1. Vanilla Yogurt
2. Cheddar and Sour Cream Chips
3. Baby Rattle
5. Mario Game
6. Funny Movie
7. Golf Ball
8. Flowers (Real or Fake)
9. Mechanical Pencil
10. Cold Medicine
Here is the list I gave my daughter (I used clip art from Microsoft Word, but blogger won't let me copy it.)
apples, bananas, grapes, watermelons, cucumbers, tomatoes, cookies, cake, bread, cheese
If you would like me to e-mail the documents to you, I would be happy to do so if you provide an e-mail address.
